    Re: Scale

    Depending upon the severity of your scaling, and if there is more than just the pool surface involved, treatment can vary. For some, acid washing and or sanding/grinding have been somewhat popular. You may also want to read our page about scaling at Pool School - Calcium Scaling. As you can imagine, your equipment is also of prime concern, so keep a close eye on your test readings and CSI range, Hope this helps.
